Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

Impromptu - done without being planned or rehearsed.

That is exactly what happened with this photograph.

We were in Wycoller, near the ruins of old Wycoller Hall on a misty morning. I had my back to the hall, watching some ducks which were messing around by the stream, when I heard this laughter behind me.

I turned, to see two girls in bright clothes racing towards me on bikes. The moment was too good to miss; I hadn't altered the aperture or the ISO but I managed to get them in frame and clicked!

I liked how the girls seemed incongruous with the spooky atmosphere of the building and how their clothes brightened up the misty morning.

Certainly not the best prepared shot but one which I enjoyed taking.

The girls giggled to halt nearby. Their feet were just a little wet but they were loving every minute of this countryside cycle!

Hope you all have an enjoyable day, Bev :-)

I must apologise to all those who critiqued my photograph, yesterday, for totally confusing you. I had been rushing to upload before I went to work and had inadvertently placed Portinscale in Cornwall rather than Cumbria! (I could imagine tourists searching diligently for the mountainous regions of Cornwall!)
